I'm 31, I posted right at the beginning..
There was a comment a while back about moving a huge object through the water with only your brain, some fabric and the wind.. it's amazing, and the main reason why I sail.. some people feel that way I've found, and some don't..
I've raced on a 36 Bavaria for a year now, and after an offshore race, sails trimmed comfortably in 15knts, flying into the harbor, I couldn't help but say "isn't it amazing that it's only the wind moving the boat?"
The average comment was, we've been sailing all day jackass, have you not been paying attention
Dunno, just sailing hits you sometimes more than others !!
